Gal Gadot And Patty Jenkins Team Up For Cleopatra Biopic

There are few women in history talked about more than Cleopatra, the great ruler of Egypt. Her likeness has been portrayed in countless stories, including the 1963 film that made us associate her with Elizabeth Taylor. Well, Paramount has now decided that it’s time for a new age-old tale. Cleopatra is an upcoming biopic with Gal Gadot in its lead role, directed by Patty Jenkins.

It’s uncertain what exact story Cleopatra will tell. In typical biopic fashion, we may see her entire 39 years of life play out in front of us. Though, Egyptian history is filled with great stories, and there are many routes that the film could take. We could see love affairs, the war on Rome, or a story that we’re not used to hearing, since we’re sure there are many!

This will be the third time that Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins have worked together. They made history with 2017’s Wonder Woman, a record-breaking film about one of DC’s most famous heroes. We’ll see the pairing’s work again with Wonder Woman 1984, but the coronavirus pandemic keeps dragging its release date.

Laeta Kalogridis (the unfortunately canceled Netflix series Altered Carbon , Alita: Battle Angel) is behind the script. Atlas Entertainment and Pilot Wave Pictures are producing. The film has reportedly caused quite the stir in the industry, as an intense auction went down with bidders including Universal, Warner Bros, Netflix, and Apple. It seems as if Hollywood knows just how much potential this Cleopatra film might have!

Another Exciting Biopic To Wait For

We have plenty of biopics coming out in the near future that are worth getting excited for. This includes films about Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, and more. However, it’s not as often that we get highly-anticipated biopics about female leaders in history! So, we’re definitely adding this one to our radar.
